Champagne Sharks

You know the blog was halfway between a long form Article what eventually became became like a tweet. The blog was something else and that had a very specific effect on discourse oliver was moving things toward the ephemeral. a sit down book is less federal than a daily newspaper. Which is you know. Still less ephemeral than a tv broadcast which is still less ephemeral than like you know a blog post or or twitter know the the blog post is..
